A WOMAN'S SONG.

Do you call my face a rose, ■With the time of roses near ? Find a truer name than this For the brow and lips you kiss, For you know that roses die Jn "the autumn of the year. And beside you, love, must I Front the frosts and face the snows. I was never rose or star, One's too near and one s too far, I’m no pebble and no pearl, Bait a living, loving girl. Mouth to kiss you, hand to keep .Touch with you while you re asleep. Eves to kindle when you’re glad, Hope to climb when you would creep, Tongue to comfort when you re sad. Call me wife and comrade dear, Call me neither star nor lose Then the day I need not dread [When the snow fails on my head, Then mv soul to yours shall be Changeless, though roy beauty goes. And the eyes I love not see [Youth and grace forsaking me As the bee foesakes a rose When the wind of autumn blows, Soul and soul looks in and knows All that’s best for You and Me. —Nora Hopper,
